By Renée Francoeur
October 18, 2016 – Eaton has announced a new version of its medium-voltage SC9000 adjustable frequency drive (AFD), designed to help customers support energy efficiency. The new SC9000 general purpose (GP) drives are designed for a wide range of original equipment manufacturer (OEM), water and wastewater, utility, industrial and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications.
The SC9000 GP can be maintenance-free for up to 10 years, Eaton claims, and boasts a low part count topology as well as being standard-equipped with a redundant cooling system.
The SC9000 GP medium-voltage drives are tested to UL and cUL standards for medium-voltage power conversion equipment and the models are compatible with Eaton’s suite of medium-voltage motor control solutions, including Ampgard control solutions and ArcGard arc-resistant switchgear.
